We just ordered a 35i. The price difference between a comparable 28i and 35i was about $3K, still a lot of money, but as Leewtech said, the power to weight ratio with the 35i was significant to me. I figure, add 4 passengers, luggage at times, and the 35i will not work as hard. Just my opinion.
the specs - Alpine while, Sand beige interior, premium and tech pkg. Hopefully, we'll get the new toy by EOY
